Donald Fagen on Amnesty International benefit song

He's one of 50 or so artists taking part in Toast To Freedom, but since Radio Dupree is somewhat extra interested in the news about Steely Dan we focus this piece of news on Donald's participation.

The song is one more of those where artists are gathered - face to face or with the help of technology - to sing/play a sentence or two on a song written to raise awareness and money for a cause or organisation. This one for Amnesty International celebrating 50 years and its work for human rights.

More about the song on the official website:

Here's the making-of video:


And here's the full length seven minute version of the song:

We might see him on Leno tonight with any luck

We heard he passed on the Leno gig. Maybe not that surprised. Would've been a bigger surprise seeing him take the stage to perform on Leno. :)
